Blue Tango
Mantovani Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Here am I with you in a world of blue
And we're dancing to the tango we loved when first we met
While the music plays, we recall the days
When our love was a tune that we couldn't soon forget
As I kiss your cheek, we don't have to speak
The violins, like a choir, express the desire
We used to know not long ago
So just hold me tight in your arms tonight

Overall Meaning

Mantovani's song "Blue Tango" evokes a sense of nostalgia and longing for a past love. The lyrics describe the main characters in a world of blue, denoting sadness and depression. However, despite their melancholic state, they are dancing to a tango that they loved when they first met, which recalls the happy and passionate moments of their past relationship. The music creates a space for them to relive those moments, and as they move to the tango, they recall the days when their love was a tune that they couldn't soon forget.


As the tango plays and their dance continues, there is no need for words as the violins express the desire they used to know not long ago. The violins act as a choir of emotions that convey their deep-seated longing for each other, and as the song progresses, they cling tighter to each other, holding each other in their arms, relishing the moment. The lyrics of the song show that despite their past love and the emotional weight it carries, the power of the music to evoke those emotions reignites their passion. The song is a powerful representation of the role that music can play in our emotional states, as it can intensify our emotions and allow us to feel deeply.

Growing up I remember my dad and mother listening to the Blue Tango at home and my dad loved this piece. Although both of my parents have passed I still think of them all the time and the Blue Tango that they enjoyed listening too.😊👍👍

Az én időmben, a tanítás befejeztével az egész iskola készült a TORNAVIZSGÁRA , együtt és osztályonként is. Mi erre a zenére jártuk el a LUFI TÁNCOT, melyet a tornatanárnőnk tanitott be. A mai napig emlékszem egy-egy motívumára. Azóta is imádom a Kéktangót !
